Brian came over today. His car got upgraded to synthetic oil, new transmission fluid/filter, shift kit, and we put on the w-body dipstick tube. My car got a new solid motor mount, rewired the trunk release, and we put in the new MAP sensor connector.

Its an old ship that ran aground a long time ago. I'm not from the area, so I don't really know the history on it.

Slight vibration in the pedal now at about 1600, and the motor doesn't buck going into gear now.

Not difficult at all. Put the car on stands since it sits so too low to get a jack under the motor regular. Jack up on the oil pan (using a board to distribute the pressure of course, take the nuts off top and bottom of the mount, had to unbolt the the bracket from the engine then reverse the process.

Took about 30 minutes.
